Interview with Rob Wood

Posted by Anna Fraser

Hi Rob! Tell us about yourself in two sentences - who are you?

I'm soon to be retiree age, but not retiring, I love photography way too much, having worked the length and breadth of the UK. My photographic career began in 1980 when I bought, (second hand), my first SLR a Pentax MX manual camera and a 50mm lens, which I still have.

QWhat's the weirdest situation you've found yourself in while taking a photograph?

AWeirdest situation I've found myself in was in Gran Canaria at Playa del Ingles. It was early afternoon, (I love the deep, harsh shadows for my black and white work), when I was surrounded and hemmed in by four people I'd seen earlier on the beach. They made demands for money, meanwhile I could feel someone else rifling through my backpack and taking items out, I was so tightly packed that I couldn't move at all. Bear in mind that it's broad daylight in a very busy resort and people just looked on, probably couldn't believe what they were seeing. Things eased and the robbers disappeared in all directions very calmly, my backpack was much lighter than when I'd left the hotel. I could see they weren't carrying anything so the one that went through my bag obviously left before the others.

QWhat do you shoot on? What's your favourite set up?

AMy favourite set up is the 5D Mkii and 24mm wide angle. I find that wide angle involves the viewer much more in the image and perhaps may give them a feeling of being there.

QWhat's your number one tip for an aspiring photographer?

AMy tip for aspiring photographers would be to switch off 'Auto' and go to 'Manual', that way the photographer's in control, not the camera.

The image I like best is titled 'Balance'. This skateboard track is ten minutes from where I live in Barcelona beside the Mediterranean and is always very busy seven days a week... Read more

The image I like best is titled 'Balance'. This skateboard track is ten minutes from where I live in Barcelona beside the Mediterranean and is always very busy seven days a week. I knew I wanted a backlit shot and that there would be heavy shadows, (my monochrome work has been influenced by the great Film Noir movies of the 1940/1950s), so I had to choose lights against darks and visa versa to make the image work. Barcelona is always very busy, no matter where you go to shoot, as I like to minimise people as much as I can in my shots to aid composition and make them an intrinsic part of the image, I find myself playing a waiting game till things look just right through the viewfinder to release the shutter.

I was surprised to see this heavy sea mist as I live just fifteen minutes from this scene and when I left home the sky was blue with glorious Barcelona sunshine warming everything. This was a chance too good to miss, five minutes later the surfer had disappeared into the mist. Read less

Taken from a vantage point of a café terrace in Port Olimpic, Barcelona. The area below is a main thoroughfare along the port's promenade, I had to wait a very long time to get a lone figure shot and meanwhile keeping my eye on the light, I didn't want to lose that or I'd have to go back and try again. Luckily it all came together. Read less

This was an unusual day for me, I'd left home without my camera. When I got to the beach and saw dozens of kitesurfers I went straight back home for my gear. I'm very lucky to have a patient understanding partner, she stands about, without complaint, for hours sometimes waiting for me to get the shot. This image is one of about a hundred. Taken at the beach in Poblenou, Barcelona. Read less
